Wake Forest Innovations and Novarus Healthcare to Develop Mobile Apps and Web-based Tools

Wake Forest Innovations has partnered with the Charlotte, North Carolina-based Novarus Healthcare to develop mobile apps and other web-based tools to improve patient care and reduce costs. The two organizations have signed a collaboration agreement to jointly develop and commercialize products to be used in medical centers including Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. These tools and apps will help doctors, nurses and other health care providers improve the care they provide their patients and reduce the costs of health care.

“Medical practitioners want to connect with their patients in their homes, particularly before a patient enters the hospital,” says Eric Tomlinson, DSc, PhD, chief innovation officer of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and president of Wake Forest Innovation Quarter. “These easy-to-use tools will provide them with an effective way to do that.”

Wake Forest Innovations and Novarus Healthcare will also collaborate to commercialize certain intellectual property of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and Wake Forest University, including novel interactive tools to improve health care.
